: lies, misinformation and a deliberate coverup. conclusions of house republicans on how the obama administration handled the benghazi terror attack. democrats in the white house are firing back. this is "special report." >> good evening, i'm bret bamplet as a new terror investigation is underway in boston, researchers for five republican controlled house committees have come out with a scathing indictment of the obama administration's response to the september 11th terror attack in benghazi, libya that left four americans dead. including the u.s. ambassador. national security correspondent jennifer griffin has details tonight from the pentagon. good evening, jennifer. >> greenk, bret. fox news has obtained a progress report prepared by members of the house republican conference on events surrounding the september 11th attacks in benghazi. it concludes the administration's reaction was, quote: a concerted attempt to insulate the department of state from blame following the terrorist attacks. the report was prepared by the chairman of the armed services foreign affairs judiciary ov
have thought that gun control would be such a central part of the debate in president obama's second term? picking up on that, how much of what actually gets done is just sort of the circumstances that occur, the events and crises that draw our attention and how much is presidential skill or the political set of facts in terms of who controls the senate and congress. what is really driving our policy? >> it has been a combination of all those things. that's what's interesting. if you look at smart presidents like lyndon baines johnson became masterful manipulators of the political process to pass legislation including civil rights law that anyone thought was possible. and i think no one would have thought it was even possible to discuss gun control legislation and immigration at the same time at the beginning of barack obama's first term. and yet circumstances changed. in the immigration law, what is driving all this is clearly the poll numbers. that's all that is behind this whole gang of 8 legislative effort. so i think a new sort of deal of the cards, if you will. a new seventh ci
brennan or obama or others to describe it in accurate terms precludes us from responding effectively. lou: can someone tell me why in the world we're watching a administration that initially refuse to call it a terrorism. they have not acknowledged it is seated in any radical islamist world view. what is the point of this? when are we going to see a brake through here in the -- breakthrough in the mind set of the government, we should point out, this is a mind set that was shared by the bush administration,. >> at the end certainly. lou: early as 2002, a major issue went to use expression radical i islamist this nation will destroy itself if we cannot speak honestly about our enemies. >> it is okay we'll pass the immigration bill, and 11 million people will get citizenship. lou: your sense of -- >> i think you are right, it is about a mind set they decided we don't you know political correctness, we don't want to talk about anything that might discriminate. we put blinders on the reality, it is time little bit at political correctness took a back say the to common sense, if we're blinded
that it does look sunny and warmer sunday/monday. >> time now 7:12. president obama lashed out at senators who voted against new gun control legislation. >> because the american people are trying to figure out how can something have 90% support and not have it. >> washington insider weighs in on whether another push for tougher gun laws is likely. >> plus, the big reward being offered in the search for a missing hayward man. ñç >>> a little cooler this morning. not as much of a breeze thankfully. sunny today. warmer. 60s and 70s. things look to be quieter today than the past couple days. >> time now 7:15. happening right now president obama and first lady michelle obama have arrived in boston. these are live pictures. they are arriving now. the president and first lady will be in boston attending inter faith prayer service in honor of those injured and killed in the boston bombings. focused on where air force one. we know air force one is down on the ground. the president will be speaking at the service. we wanted to take you live to boston's airport to let you know the president is in the
. it said, "breaking" two explosions in the white house and barack obama is injured. that was a fake report as a result of a hack attack against the a.p. twitter account. but it set off this reaction in the dow jones industrial average, as you see from the chart, a huge spike down on that news. down about 143 points at the bottom. and then bouncing right back up, all of that happening within the space of about three minutes. and by sheer coincidence, the white house briefing was set to start, and by tradition, the a.p. reporter gets the first question from the white house. and she had a chance to make a little bit of news of her own, explaining what just happened here. take a listen. >> reporter: i just want to say at the top that it appears as though a.p.'s twitter account has been hacked so anything just sent out about any incident about the white house is false and we'll be putting something out shortly to clarify that. that has happened already. >> the president is fine. i was just with him. >> just a strange, strange story, larry. it's not every day that you see the white house spokesm

with this administration is that their policies are failing. they do not believe that we're at war. >> the obama administration is failing? what you see there is the senator pivoting from legitimate questions about the fbi to using those questions to undermine the president and his entire national security policy. it's unfair and, more than that, it's wrong. while a terror victim, a fallen police officer, were being laid to rest, senator graham was on fox news to use the boston tragedy as an excuse to dredge up tired, old complaints about benghazi. >> what do i mean by upping our game? making sure that when the ambassador in libya tells the state department and the department of defense that al qaeda flags are flying over benghazi, i can't defend my consulate against a coordinated attack, that you do something about it. that when a consulate is under attack and an ambassador is missing for 7 1/2 hours you have the ability to go to their rescue. and after the fact you don't lie to the american people. >> lie to the american people? what does boston benghazi? that's not a clip from last year. that
the bombings. president obama marked the moment of silence from the white house. the u.s. senate held a similar tribute on capitol hill. it is still unclear what impact the boston bombings will have on the immigration debate in congress. but the topic of national security is clearly playing a more prominent role in the discussion. things got tense on capitol hill yesterday when senator chuck schumer sparred republican senator chuck grassley about the future of the legislation. take a look. >> a few ways to improve the bill all for an amendment when we start mark-up in may and let's vote on it. i say that particularly those who were pointing to what happened. the terrible tragedy in boston as a -- i would say an excuse for not doing a bill or delaying it many months oer years. >> i never said that. >> i didn't say you did, sir. >> i didn't say -- >> i didn't say you did. i don't mean you, mr. grassley. >> mr. chairman, i don't appreciate the senator demeaning the witnesses that have come here. >> earlier, senator patrick leahy who chairs the judiciary committee opened the hearing with some tough

, there is no limitation. president obama says this. some members of my party say the battle has no geographic limitations, and the laws of war apply. it's important to know that the law of war that they're talking about means no due process. boyleston street sure looked -- "i quote from the" wall street journal "editorial." boyleston street sure looked like a battlefield on monday and so did watertown on thursday night. the artificial distinction arises from undue focus on geography. the vital distinction for public safety is between common criminals who deserve due process protections and enemy combatants at war with the united states wherever they are. as for due process, the greatest danger to liberty would be to allow more such attacks that would inspire an even greater public backlash against muslims or free speech or worse. the antiterror types on the left and g.o.p. senators who agree that the u.s. isn't part of the battlefield are making the united states more vulnerable. americans erupted in understandable relief and gratitude on friday with the rapid capture of the terrorist brothers, but we sh

[please stand by for captioner change] suhr is proposing having police monitor cameras at large events. >> i think you first have to start off with a plan. we need some sort of engineer to tell us what would work and this we need to find out what is most efficient and go from the
subsidies favoring certain companies over others is picking winners and loser, but the obama white house has a very bad scoreboard of picking mostly losers like. solyndra, that go bankrupt at taxpayer's expect we do not have money or resources for this. we have as there are assistant $17 trillion national debt now is not the time. neil: how do they do it, if you bet on new technology, does government get behind it. >> we lost everything, we have green taxes, we just tax people. we have seen it before. fundamentally, there does need to be reform in washington, $100 billion a year in corporate welfare, crony capitalism that needs to be looked at money from that should be us used at the gn energy. neil: i we think we should drop all subsidies. >> this green energy stuff is crony capitalism. neil: just, get rid of them all, what do you think? >> neil, we're in middle of that, new tech is a government guaranteed lender, that program is worked for 53 years, this year because of the risk sharing between new tech and government a zero subsidy item. there are times where government, does play an acti
discretion to certify when this is substantially complete. president obama states it in a speech in the past though that he believed the border fence was basically complete. if you determine little or no additional fencing is necessary, what do think we this initial certify that it has been completed? is passed as it is think we written, i will move very quickly. we have sector by sector technology plans. we have not been sitting back waiting for a bill to pass. very quickly. >> do you believe the discretion could permit you to make a finding that is complete without building any additional fencing? right now the border patrol has done an extensive study of where fencing make sense across the southwest border. there were 653 miles. we would go back and look at the kind of fencing is. he can do this for humanitarian purposes to ensure family unity. in what situations which you think about granting the waiver? caveat on myo have the answers. see that there would be considerations based on the aid of a conviction, whether the individual was the primary wage , ther for the family record sent a p

the obama administration changed the way the war is prosecuted. ordering the pentagon who stop using the term global war on terror. instead calling it an overseas contingency operation. the president's current cia director raised eyebrows when he declared jihad is not necessary lay bad thing. >> as americans, we refuse to live in feemplet nor do we describe our enemy as jihadists or islamists because jihad is a holy struggle a legitimate tenet of islam. >> our president says we have a war on al qaeda not a war on terror. >> that's ridiculous. this is ideologically based war which ideology that unfortunately emerges from a religion. >> critics say it comes down to semantics whether the administration considers this a war, involving enemy combatants or a law enforcement challenge. bret? >> bret: jennifer griffin live at the pentagon. thank you. much more on all of this with the panel tonight, an expanded panel. president obama will attend a memorial service thursday for the victims of the west texas fertilizer plant explosion. 14 people were killed in last week's blast and dozens more
that comes across the border with biometric data and can't get obama care so they can work and pay taxes but never get medicaid. you're seeing him going hat in hand trying to sell his bill as even more draconian and far right. we're going to electrify the whole southern border, i suppose, or whatever it is they want. just to get them to pass something that would help the republican party because it would make them less toxic to latino voters. >> joy reid and dana milbank, who i believe was recommending not clitoridectomy, but the removal of the tongue for ann coulter. thank you very much. >> thank you, doctor. >>> as we go to break, new video just in featuring the mother of the bombing suspects, again, insistent that her sons are innocent. >> what happened is a terrible thing. but i know that my kids have nothing to do with this. i know it.

discussion that the blind sheik, whose picture is up on the screen now, might be freed by the obama administration, that president morsi in egypt that seemed to infuriate you some what and you wrote an article, "will obama free the blind sheik?" now if you think about this, in this case, if the death penalty is not sought, are you concerned that some president down the road could ignore the issue of a life sentence imposed by a federal judge and just send the terrorist off somewhere? >> on this guy, tsarnaev? >> right. >> no, i'm not concerned about that. he's very different from the sheik. concerned about that. a sheikh is a highly symbolic figure among muslims. he was and still is widely respected as a muslim scholar, and regarded as an authority. he's a big deal. this guy is a mutt. >> so you're not worried about that? >> no. >> finally the death penalty, if he is charged with those crimes that he clearly can be, he's eligible for the death penalty? >> absolutely. >> do you think that this >> do you think this just disat the present time -- justice department will seek it? >> i h

has only just begun, and the decision by the obama administration, not to designate him as an enemy combatant is upsetting several republicans. >> i have been informed that the obama administration has indicated this suspect in boston will not be treated as enemy combatant. i strongly disagree with the obama administration's decision to rule out enemy combatant status for this suspect at this time. >> let's bring in our senior legal analyst jeffrey toobin, joining us from new york. can or should a u.s. citizen be formally given this enemy combatant status? what does the law say? >> every terrorist suspect arrested in the united states, since the first world trade center bombing in 1993 has been treated in the criminal justice system, not as an enemy combatant. standard operating procedure. frankly, the whole status of enemy combatant remains ambiguous in the legal system. the prisoners in guantanamo bay remain in legal limbo. by treating them as criminal suspects, the obama administration is avoiding all kinds of risks and simply acting as the bush administration has in the past and

more on the reaction from washington, rich edson is live at the white house. president obama was briefed on the situation this morning, the situation room as it is called is active. rich: it is quite active and has been this morning and president obama started a meeting with the vice president, it lasted an hour. we have subsequent meetings here, secretary of state john kerry, secretary of defense shuts hegel, director of intelligence james clapper and others at the white house. however senior administration officials stress that is for previously scheduled meeting of national security principals, so nothing really specifically to do, nor was unscheduled specifically because of the events in boston, that was earlier this morning. news from capitol hill according to bret baier of fox news saying officials briefed lawmakers on capitol hill telling them they really want to get this second suspect alive find out perhaps if there are any more people involved, find out whether they have any training overseas or if they were radicalized in the united states or overseas and that has
happened today could have happened 30 days from now. this is what the obama administration wants. they don't care about the intelligence. they made it very clear they want people to have lawyers, to have trials and if we lose intelligence in the process, they say that's regrettable but that's just the way it is. that is unacceptable to me. it should be unacceptable to anybody who cares about preventing future terrorist attacks. >> mitch epnor it has my back up. who cares about my back. all i'm saying it sounds like this is the criminal justice model not a terrorist bombing warfare model. that's something that if administration has been accused of. did they make a mistake here? >> well, i'm going to agree it is a criminal justice model and not a terrorist enemy combatant model. that's clearly true. >> why is it true? >> it's true because he was charged under a criminal complaint today. he was brought before a magistrate. they followed standard operating procedure, every appearance to a criminal complaint t. magistrate always, always informs the defendant that he has a right to a lawyer, tha
brings me here today is i have been informed that the obama administration has indicated this suspect in boston will not be treated as an enemy combatants. i strongly disagree with the obama administration's decision to roll out and in the combat the status for the suspect at this time. i believe such a decision is premature. it is impossible for us to gather the evidence in just a few days to determine whether or not this individual should be held for questioning under the law of war. the decision by the administration to try this individual in federal court is a sound decision. it is the right decision. military commission trials are not available in cases like this. i wrote the 2009 military commission act. i have been the judge advocate for over 30 years, along with the help of many colleagues. we created a system for foreign terrorists. we purposely excluded american citizens. i have all the confidence in the world in article 3 courts at the federal level. they do a terrific job. i have confidence in our military commissions system. the decision by the administration not to proce
to legal counsel when you're being questioned for national security purposes. so i hope the obama administration will allow that exception and they have a very bad track record here. >> the white house telling reporters it would try tsarnaev in federal court and no other options were considered. >> this is matter decide ode by the attend of yates and the attorney general. the whole national security team supports this decision. >> to bring it down for you, the confusion comes over the venue. there is no way under the military commissions act to try an american citizen at the military courts in guantanamo bay, but if a sed threshold of evidence was met, if there was evidence that the brothers were directed by a foreign terrorist organization that would call for enemy combatant status. >> we have been talking about the trip to russian that the older suspect took. it's my understanding you learn more about the trip. >> fox news was told that russia's equivalent othe fbi isn't a letter to the bureau claiming the older brother was a believer in radical islam and traveled to join an ext
